Leaving long grass makes for wonderful and vital habitat. You may be thinking that this is going to look neglected, like you do not care about our garden. Well there are a number of ways that you can still have a tended and contemporary looking garden AND long grass. How about mowing a perfect circle or rectangle shape in your lawn. You may just want to mow a path and leave the rest of the lawn to go all natural!

    This kind of framing is a lovely balance, sit with it for a while, allow nature to do her thing and all sorts of species of insects, amphibians, birds and flowers will occupy that area quickly.

    You may be stepping outside your comfort zone, but you can do it and it will begin to feel good and will be very rewarding!
